In 1959 author Truman Capote (Hoffman) dragged his best friend Harper Lee (Keener) to rural Kansas to investigate the brutal murders of farmer Herb Clutter, his wife and his two teenage children. What followed was sad, shocking and in terms of US literature, near revolutionary and would result in the publication of Capote's only 'non fiction novel' 'In Cold Blood'. Beautifully performed but somehow airless and stilted recreation of the events that surrounded the creation of a masterpiece.
